NEW YORK (AP) - The Weeknd celebrated his breakout year from critical darling to full-blown pop star at iHeartRadio’s “Jingle Ball” concert in New York City.

The Grammy-nominated singer headlined Friday at Madison Square Garden, and even left out expletives during his set of songs, which was explosive and energetic.

He sang familiar radio hits like “Can’t Feel My Face” and “The Hills” in front of the feverish crowd, as did Nick Jonas, Selena Gomez, Charlie Puth, Fifth Harmony and Shawn Mendes.

Demi Lovato was a vocal powerhouse in front of the loud audience and offered words of encouragement to the young fans.

Other performers included 5 Seconds of Summer, Hailee Steinfeld, Calvin Harris and Zedd. Fetty Wap performed his hit “Trap Queen” and silenced the audience when he ended his set with an expletive.
